Verrucous hemangioma is a structural variant of capillary or cavernous hemangioma in which reactive epidermal acanthosis, papillomatosis, and hyperkeratosis are secondary developments. It usually presents at birth, but may appear later in adult life. Often misdiagnosed clinically as angiokeratoma, its distinct histopathology helps to differentiate the two. It has the tendency for recurrence if not treated by wide excision. We report a case of 22-year-old male who had linear verrucous hemangioma on his left leg since childhood. The purpose of reporting it is the rarity of the case and the possibility of recurrence, if not treated by wide excision and skin grafting.
